Introduction: Non-communicable disease (NCD) is the leading cause of death globally. PTM is closely related to degenerative conditions. With age, physiological function will decrease due to aging process so that NCD many appear in old age. In addition, degenerative problems can lower the immune system so it is very susceptible to disease.Global WHO (World Health Organization) estimates non-infectious diseases account for 63% of deaths and 43% morbidity worldwide. The 2010 global status report on the NCD World Health Organization (WHO) reported that 60% of all deaths in the world are due to non-communicable diseases and 4% dying before the age of 70 years the proportion of non-infectious causes of death diseases in people younger than 70 year, cardiovascular disease is the biggest cause (39%), followed by cancer (27%) (Riley, 2014). This situation leads to difficult handling due to complications and even early death. Objective: This research is expected to be applied as health care innovation in reducing non-communicable diseases case in Indonesia.
